Well, after reading that last review, I was stoked to seeing this trailer, and yes, its as bad as Andrew makes it out to be (which is good!). The flying saucer effects are hilarious, theres ludicrous action sequences, and absolutely none of it makes sense. My favorite part: flying newspaper line about a UFO landing superimposed over lady looking for UFO. Essential trailer trash viewing.

I found this trailer to be just plain poor. I've watched this two or three times now and I still have no idea what, exactly, the movie is about, other than the fact that a flying saucer is somehow involved. For some reason, it was decided that adding what is, perhaps, the slowest fight scene I have ever watched, with no real explanation as to why the people are even fighting, would be a bigger draw than showing actual flying saucers, so that's what we're presented with for a little less than two minutes. The few shots that do show the saucer aren't too shabby -- the effects are believable, at least. Those few clips aside, though, there isn't anything in the trailer that would tell you what this movie might deal with -- there's no dialogue, no narration, not even title cards warning us of what's to come. The print isn't terrible -- a bit dark, if anything, but nothing unwatchable. Steer clear unless you're going for the distinction of having seen every trailer in the Archive.
